    Well, at least you put the 17 berries to very good use!Meanwhile, you’ve reminded me that it’s about time that I went and visited my Mum’s gooseberry bushes to see what gives – I suspect there will be somewhat more than 17 berries as the bushes have produced well for her in the past. What I really need to do, of course, is to take some cuttings for myself and expand my own soft fruit collection beyond those redcurrants. I would love to have my own little gooseberry harvest…

    Fruit fools are a good way of making a little go a lot further than you might expect! I really liked your idea of making – I think I’m a bit off having 900g of gooseberries from those bushes, though.
